The CANADIAN NITRO NATIONALS are just a few days away, and for all the teams entered for this historic first event, the excitement and anticipation are building.
The NAPA ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN DRAG RACING SERIES will be part of this huge weekend at Toronto Motorsports Park.
The USDS will be showcasing the always wild, and fan favorite PRO MODIFIEDS, as well as the ultra competitive, TOP SPORTSMAN & TOP DRAGSTER 32 car field. The door cars and the open wheeled cars will each qualify the 16 quickest racers, on their side of the ladder. The T/D vs. T/S finalists face each other in a $10,000. to win race.
Joining the pre-registered Top Dragster entries, is Erin Stirdivant out of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Erin drives the Muffler Man sponsored, rear engined dragster, built by Bowen Race Cars.
Michael Staley is the Team Owner and serves as the crew chief on the supercharged, big block Chevy powered entry.
Erin has quite an impressive racing resume, as the thirty-one year old has racked up a win here in Canada, at the 2014 Stratford Spectacular. She also was the 2013 IHRA NITRO JAM Top Dragster Champion at US 131 Dragway, and has had success at the Division 5 Team Finals.
Erin and Michael receive assistance from crew members:
Chuck Stirdivant, Jerry Metzner, Kerri Staley, and Lauren Staley.
Big thanks go out to Muffler Man, and Bowen Race Cars.
